Hi All,

I would like to use PROC T TEST for superiority testing. The hypothesis will be tested by one-sided t-test at the alpha level of 0.025. Rejection of the null-hypothesis is consistent with superiority of the investigational treatment to the placebo.

Do you have any idea how can we perform in SAS?

Thanking in Advance

The option SIDES on the Proc Ttest statement is used to indicate 2 L(ower one side) or U(pper oneside) test, default is 2

The option Alpha sets the significance, use Alpha=0.025. Default is 0.05.

Data should have a Class variable to indicate which of the two populations records come from (treatment or placebo), this variable can be numeric or character and is indicated with a CLASS statement.

A variable(s) should hold the measure(s) of interest and must be numeric and would be placed on a VAR statement;

If you are testing one variable against a known value then you only need the variable and you would specify the "known Value" with the h0 option such as h0=30. Translates as: the Null hypothesis is the value is 30.

There are several examples in the online help you should have available.

See the discussion and examples in Castello and Watts (2015), "Equivalence and Noninferiority Testing Using SAS/STAT® Software"
